The weather has changed and the winds on the coast are so strong that apparently the last day of Boardmasters Surf Festival has been cancelled. It must be a complete nightmare for people organising events when you are so reliant on the weather, and such a disappointment for the people who had travelled here to attend. Our band was meant to play a gig last year on the beach at Newquay when we got news that the stage had blown away. Luckily the Carnival we were playing at last night escaped the rain and was enjoyed by a big crowd. It was great fun, we were accompanied by firemen on pretend horses 'galloping' around us firing at the crowd with water pistols. There was a lovely community spirit, with many local characters taking part.
I hope the weather hasn't ruined your plans for the weekend.
I will leave you with some photos taken on the coast road when I was on the way to work last week. I did actually stop the car, they weren't taken while I was driving!! It was so beautiful I had to get some photos for you.
